Stainless Steel Casework — An Overview

Stainless steel casework is one of the most common types of casework because of the functionality they offer. They are rust-proof, stain-resistant, and are easy to clean. For these reasons, they’re preferred in most wet laboratory environments as they are long lasting and durable.
